I'd be more concerned about reliability than a small amount of added friction while riding. Is it out of adjustment enough that it's going to fail soon?

When you consider the greater forces at work on a cyclist, like gravity and wind resistance, bearing resistance is minimal.

And when you add the mass of the crankset and pedals, and the rolling resistance of the chain, it's very hard to feel slight resistance in the BB.
